5 out of 5 eggs Great Game! 01/03/2015

This review is from: Far Cry 3 PC Game

Pros: Best game I have played in a while! Great graphics and scenery plus multiple ways of attacking or meeting objectives.

Cons: At first my comp would flake out and eventually freeze a few mins into the game. Then a light bulb went off in my head. I check the power settings and my system was set at "balanced." 2 cores were parked. So, I set the power settings up all the way which makes all 4 cores and all 8 threads fire all the time. Can now play for hrs w/ settings on ULTRA/all the way up and not have any problems!

Other Thoughts: MB: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 R (purchased from Newegg)
GPU: GTX 970 4GB
Memory: 2x8GB 1866MHz Corsair Vengeance Pro (from Newegg)
CPU: i7-3770 (from Newegg)

Pros: 70.5 amps on the 12V output. This is more Amps power than a lot of other higher wattage power supplies. I like it. So far so good. Working perfectly after close to a month. Fan is very quiet which is always a plus. And did I say the PSU is Modular?

Cons: Price is lower now. Oh well.

Other Thoughts: Rosewill puts out some decent electronics. Have purchased several Rosewill PSU's and other items.

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Was easy to set up to 1866MHz by enabling XMP in BIOS just like it should be and as advertized. Memory has been working perfectly since April 2014. XMP adjusted the timings too! Flawless.

Cons: Was not free.

Other Thoughts: Will definitely buy Corsair memory again.
